Londoners in the pretigious Mayfair area surrounding the US Embassy there are complaining about the lack of serious security that they claim puts them at risk in case of an attack on the building.
There is a large memorial structure in Grosvenor Square that provides a pretty decent reminder of why they are wary.
The article cites some residents ire at concrete blast barriers protecting the building at the expense of their homes. Having spent ample time sitting and waiting on said barriers, I have to wonder at their characterization as "blast barriers," assuming I'm thinking of the same things about which they're concerned.
Of course, my issues with the Embassy have both little and everything to do with September 11 . . . .
